Tompkins Connect to host the 7th annual Fab5 awards virtually in March

Tompkins Connect has announced the 7th Annual Fab5 Awards, which highlight and celebrate the achievements of young professionals who are excelling in their fields and making an impact in Tompkins County, will be held virtually on Monday, March 7 at 7PM. The 2022 winners will be announced the week of February 14. 

The Fab5 Young Professional Awards are sponsored by Tompkins Trust Company. This year’s theme “5-Star Reviews” encouraged people to nominate young professionals in the community for whom they would give a glowing five-star review. The Fab5 Award categories are: Entrepreneur of the Year, Not-for-Profit Leader of the Year, Business Leader of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Rookie of the Year.

All members of the community are invited to honor and celebrate the winners at the free virtual 2022 Fab5 Young Professional Awards Celebration on Monday, March 7, 2022 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm. 

 The event will be live-streamed with a watch party option for those who would like to virtually see and chat with other guests in attendance. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s award ceremony was also held virtually and featured many surprises such as cameos by Paula Abdul, Jon Lovitz, and Alfonso Ribeiro.


“We are confident the Fab5 Awards will continue to be a great event and can’t wait to honor several outstanding members of our community,” shared Jessie White, Fab5 Planning Committee Chair and 2019 Volunteer of the Year winner. “We also hope virtual attendees leave with a renewed sense of love for Tompkins County as a place to live, work, and most importantly stay.” 

 The Fab5 Awards are co-sponsored by Communiqué Design & Marketing, Cayuga Health, and the Triad Foundation in partnership with the Tompkins Chamber. The committee would also like to recognize the event’s media sponsor the Ithaca Voice and its production sponsor Well Said Media.
